The pupils of St. Nessan’s National School, Mungret, Limerick creatively raised €1,320 for the Nepal earthquake relief fund on their recent colours day.
A cheque was donated to Mike Winterburn of Nepal Leprosy Trust (NLT) on 9th June 2015. Mike has lived in Nepal for a number of years and was discussing Nepalese life and the trusts work there with the 6th classes. The money raised by the pupils was donated to NLT’s earthquake relief fund. It will be used in the Sindhupalchowk area of Nepal where families urgently need, shelter, clothing, food and in some cases medicine.
For a cost of approximately €90 a family of five can be provided with sufficient clothes, food, medicine, blankets and temporary shelter for a month.
